Shaped Bottle Vase by Kana Tozuka

01

Image

–01. Matte glaze.

Words

Kana Tozuka, a Japanese potter based in Hokkaido, crafts a range of ceramics inspired by an image of winter and the old streets of her hometown, Otaru. Fired at high temperatures to achieve a glistening glaze, each of these vases is unique, varying slightly in size and shape, while its rich black-bronze colouring is reminiscent of an antique aged through the passage of time.

—01. Made in Japan.
—02. 29cm x 22cm.

Words

Well designed and interesting device cases are certainly not the norm. Trying to find an iPad sleeve one might want to use on a daily basis is a daunting task. This option however, made out of highly tear and water-resistant Naoron paper, will keep your screen free of scratches and fingerprints between uses, while also offering a level of attractive simplicity.

Words

I just recently came across Tomás Alonso's work, and while he makes a much wider variety of items, it was his tables that caught my attention. The balance of colour, simplicity and functionality seem to come together perfectly. The Spanish born designer now resides in London, and you can view more of his work on his website.

New and questionable habits have me spending longer amounts of time than usual looking for useful things at Muji, and – at the other end of the money-for-small-objects spectrum – browsing expensive, and miniature Carl Auböck pieces from the online retailer OEN. Each are interesting and useful in their own way, and figuring out whether I can live without something I can certainly live without, is proving trickier than simply closing the laptop and walking away.
